ABOUT MS

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and often debilitating disease which attacks the central nervous system. It is the most common neurological disease in young adults and often attacks people at the time of their lives when they are planning families and building a career. Cases of MS are rising and over 25,600 Australians live with the condition, an increase of 4,400 in the past eight years.
